Our basic goal is to preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible. While we first look to exhaust all other options, there are times when extracting a tooth is the best treatment to protect your long-term oral health.
Tooth extractions may be necessary if:
A large cavity threatens to expand into surrounding teeth.
A tooth is too badly damaged to survive restoration.
A patient has advanced periodontal disease.
A baby tooth is blocking the path of an incoming adult tooth.
Room must be made for an implant or denture.
If you or your child needs an extraction, our entire team will do their best to make the procedure free of discomfort with the use of numbing agents, local anesthetics, and painkillers.
